He will keep us day and night
We can always run to Jesus
Jesus, strong and kind”
—Chorus, Jesus Strong and Kind by CityAlight & Colin Buchanan
God has laid on our hearts for many years a desire to help and serve those in need, especially in areas where care is most needed. Being a family of seven, it can be difficult to find inexpensive housing on the road to help others when traveling, so God gave the vision to have a self-contained motor home where we could all live and minister from.
Seeing that God was bringing us to a place where this could be a possibility for our family, and a need due to health constraints, we began praying earnestly in October that the Lord would provide a “MV” (Ministry Vehicle) for us that had enough space to fit all seven of us. In December we began also asking that it would come before the next Sing! Conference.
By January the search began in earnest. Looking for listings online that would fit our parameters, then going and looking at ones we thought might be a possibility. Some it was obvious when we saw it that it wasn’t for us, others fell through, and another that we thought was a good purchase was sold to another. Miles were driven, states were crossed, but even in these disappointments God was leading, encouraging my heart with a gentle, “Not yet. Wait, and soon I will bring you one that is near you.”
Purchasing it that day, I felt that it was indeed the answer, but felt astonished at it. I had known that God would answer our prayer, but had I also been doubting the goodness and provision of our God who has promised us all good things? I was convicted and in awe at that moment, realizing that I, and our whole family, can remember in times of uncertainty that no matter what, God does hear our prayer, and He will be faithful!
